De-Stress Destinations: Your Guide to Trips for Relaxation and Anti-Aging
When it comes to your vacation, all destinations are not created equal. Some of the most gorgeous locations can still be a bit stressful – think screaming kids or loud late-night parties – if you’re looking to genuinely relax, unwind and focus on your health. We handpicked three of the world’s most incredible destinations that are perfect for reducing stress and turning back the clock on aging.
Maya Tulum Wellness Retreat & Spa, Tulum, Mexico
The Maya Tulum Wellness Retreat & Spa is consistently mentioned as one of the most exquisite locations for reducing stress. With a beachfront location, the scenery of the resort is beyond compare and the services and activities featured only enhance the natural beauty of your surroundings. Immerse yourself in the Mayan culture with spa treatments like the Temazcal, a more than two-hour ceremony releases toxins for both physical and spiritual cleansing and finishes with a series of meditations. The Chocolate Nobility treatment harnesses the antioxidant power of cocoa and includes exfoliation, a body wrap and a massage. Participate in yoga classes for physical and mental strength or simply enjoy some time on the beach.
Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge, Telluride, Colorado
Activity and exercise are key to any successful anti-aging routine, but that doesn’t mean that you want nonstop action on a vacation meant to de-stress. The Fairmont Heritage Wellness Retreat & Spa in Telluride, Colorado is the perfect blend of activity and stress reduction. This picturesque lodge features both two bedroom/ two bathroom and three bedroom/ three bathroom luxury residences. Eating well is another important factor to anti-aging, and the Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge offers grocery shopping services so that your residence is stocked when you arrive. Spend a day on the slopes, play a round of golf or book appointments at the spa for the full anti-aging treatment.
The Museum Spa Wellness Hotel, Santorini, Greece
This historic resort is located in the village of Oia on Santorini features breathtaking views, intimate settings and two of the oldest olive trees on the island. The Museum Spa Wellness Hotel was originally a mansion that was then converted into a museum before finally becoming the relaxing resort it is today. With seven suites and a full range of spa services, this hotel is quiet, charming and the perfect spot to melt the stress away. You can book services in the Volcanic spa including aromatherapy treatments, chromotherapy, facials or massages by the pool.
